MLS goes to a 34-game schedule

Don Garber, MLS Commish

When Vancouver and Portland join the league next year, Major League Soccer will go to a 34-game schedule. Each team will play all other teams other twice.

Now, since we’re on the topic of change, it’s time for MLS to ditch the conferences and, if all goes well, the playoffs. There’s no good reason not to go to a single-table league at this point (and that won’t change when the league expands to 20 teams in the near future).

Of course, the league also needs to expand the rosters and make it easier for teams to compete in the CONCACAF Champions League and the completely inane Superliga (which needs to be ditched, but that’s another post).
